Abstract Horse Head 1 - A Work in Progress

Today I injured my knee and I have my leg in a splint that goes from the top of the thigh to the ankle and I am on crutches; not what I needed at this time of the year.

I thought I would make the best of it and play with a little bit of colour; I wet some areas of the paper and left others dry.

Next I mixed various combinations of colour together and put it on the paper and in other areas I used pure colour. Some I brushed onto the paper and some I simply dropped into various areas.

Once the paper had dried completed I looked to see if there were any shapes that could be made into anything recognizable.

It didn't take long until I found a partial horse head and drew it in with pencil.

Next I started to put pen and ink on top of the pencil outlines, but I didn't get too far along with it before I decided to set it aside for now.

I will post this painting at a later date once it has been completed.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and enjoy the artwork.
